Cabin in middle of National Forest

While hitching a ride with a four wheeler, we came across log cabin(s) deep in the middle of a NATIONAL FOREST, as we get closer, it say "private property".
as far as we can tell it was not any commercial development... just a private log cabin located in the middle of a National Forest. I see this on several places.

Can someone explain whats happening here?

Privately owned inholdings are found within national forests. We've seen them all over the country.

I have seen were the park service keeps acquiring land in an area and if a property owner doesn't want to sell the park can end up surrounding the privately owned land. I have also seen were the current owners are allowed to stay but the park system acquires the property when they are gone. Or it could be squatters in an abandoned cabin.

We have them here in the Ouachita NF. See them when trail riding. A detailed 1:25000 map shows lots of lighter colored squares not owned by NF but they are surrounded by the NF usually shown with a green tint on forest service and.

Used to backpack in the Ventena Wilderness just south of Monterey and there was a cabin about three miles in that only had access by the foot trail we used. Saw people packing wood in one time and they were adding on to it and everything had to be carried in by hand.

many national forests use to,,,, many years ago,,,, lease portions to private persons, for recreational use, the lease was usually for 99 years, you could build on it but not add on only repairs, than at the end of the lease the property reverted back to the park service. you owned the cabin but not the land. you could buy or sell the cabin,,,,as our friends did....but not the land...........

My sister has a friend who had a log cabin leased in the National Forest near Elk Mountain, WY. One fall we took our first RV and camped next to it. The cabin was built in the 30s by a rancher and transferred to the Gov't. It later became the admin office for a POW camp for German soldiers interred during WWII. Very cool cabin. I think it is on a 50 or 100 year lease. It used to be common practice to lease cabins from the Gov't.
